A midnight deadline has passed without the announcement of a programming deal between Viacom (VIAB) and Dish Network (DISH).

A spokesperson for Viacom declined to comment Thursday. Postings on social media indicated that a threatened blackout of Viacom’s programming for the satellite TV provider’s 14 million subscribers had not occurred.

Viacom’s networks are also still listed as options for new customers, according to Dish’s website.

The companies have been in discussions for several months over whether Dish would continue to carry Viacom’s 18 channels and at what price.

A blackout would block Dish subscribers’ access to Viacom shows such as Broad City on Comedy Central and SpongeBob SquarePants on Nickelodeon.

A spokesperson for Dish was not immediately available for comment.
